someone told me you have to play on a computer first?

i dont know if that's still true. It was strange restriction.

Hey I'm new to shogi and new to 81 dojo I downloaded the app on my phone but it won't let me play ranked games. What do I have to do to play ranked games?

Just want to mention about 81Dojo. Shogi culture is bigger than 81Dojo. In some respects, 81Dojo takes a narrower view. It's more tournament-like than friendly shogi.

Welcome Gravev! I was also going to recommend Hidetchi's series. It's also worth looking at the wikipedia pages as well as the ones here on 81dojo.

I believe learning the culture of Shogi is just as important as learning the rules.

Welcome to 81Dojo, Gravev! Hidetchi's "How to Play Shogi" playlist is a great place to begin learning the game:
